Oakworth Primary School
Together We Learn, Together We Grow
On behalf of the children and staff, I would like to welcome you to Oakworth Primary School. We hope that you will find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It has been designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life of the school, the work of our wonderful pupils and the quality education that we strive to deliver.
Oakworth Primary is a two-form foundation school, set in the heart of the picturesque Worth Valley. We also have our own, fifty-two place Nursery, which ensures that children receive an excellent start to their education. We are very proud that visitors to our school comment positively on the high-quality teaching and learning, caring ethos and outstanding behaviour that they observe.
It is the school’s priority to provide a stimulating environment where children grow and develop in safe and supportive surroundings and become equipped with skills for life-long learning. Children at Oakworth are recognised as unique individuals, with specific talents and needs. We promote high standards in all areas and work tirelessly to provide a varied and creative curriculum and memorable school experiences that foster a love of learning and make our classrooms hives of activity and enterprise.
As a village school, we also aim to work in close partnership with parents and the local community. We welcome many visitors into school to support and enhance the children’s learning and you will regularly see us out and about in the locality, making full use of the stimulating environment and encouraging pupils to develop their citizenship. Thank you for browsing our website. If you would like to know more about the school, you are very welcome to contact the School Office or to come and visit us. The children of Oakworth very much enjoy talking about and sharing their achievements and learning and we will all look forward to meeting you.
Year 4 recently spent 3 days and 2 nights at Winmarleigh Hall a multi activity center near the Forest of Bowland. The children and adults tried various activities. They experienced a heat wave while they where there, which was very lucky! Please enjoy looking at the photos and reading some comments from the children. -Roman Year 4 Panthers:"I'm glad that I went because I enjoyed being there and I overcame some of my fears". -Megan Year 4 Panthers:"The zipwire was really good even though I was scared of heights but I'm not now after going abseiling and on the vertical challenge as well". -Lottie Year 4 Cheetahs:"It was really fun". -Archie Year 4 Cheetahs:"Vertical challenge was my favourite activity but all of it was awesome!".
Friday 25th September saw Baby Café and the school staff supporting Macmillans big coffee morning. The Mums and babies completed pushchair laps of the playground and were rewarded with chocolate cake! Mrs Garner spent many hours baking special treats for all the staff to enjoy at beak time in the staff room. We are really pleased to announce that we raised approx £200 for this charity. Huge thanks to all concerned and especially Mrs Garner.
